      Important Security Advisory   06/07/2016

      On June 6th, 2016, BitTorrent was made aware of a security issue involving the vendor which powers our forums.
      The vulnerability appears to have been through one of the vendor’s other clients, however it allowed attackers to access some information on other accounts. As a result, attackers were able to download a list of our forum users. We are investigating further to learn if any other information was accessed.Our vendor has made backend changes so that the hashes in the file do not appear to be a usable attack vector. As a precaution, we are advising our users to change their passwords. While the passwords may not be used as a vector on the forums, those hashed passwords should be considered compromised. Anyone using the same password for forums as well as other places is strongly advised to update their passwords and/or practice good personal security practices.

Problem solved. Uninstall/Reinstall, restart... no more problem.

 

I upgraded to Ad-Free, payment went thru no problem, uTorrent downloading/Seeding, no problem, all Internet activity functioning, no problem. Try to activate Ad-Free, big problem.

So, whats the problem? Its NOT on my end. Please resolve.

Actually, that has no bearing on the situation. Both Firewall and Antivirus have been disabled in the attempt to activate. So its something else. I think the only solution at this point is to Uninstall/Install uTorrent. I'm going to try that now.

This does NOT answer my question.
